Waterproofing / Damp Cure

Due to the severe weather conditions here in South-Africa there is unfortunately, a huge waterproofing problem. Once again, Plena Fide believe in using only the top brand names in this field. We stay with the 3-step resolution. Plena Fide start with determining if the damp is caused either by positive and negative. Then we determine what the best methods will be to rectify the cause. We adhere to manufacturer guide lines when starting a waterproofing project. Basic Leak detection, Proper surface preparation, then the Application.
There are basically 5 kinds of waterproofing
- Waterproofing with a membrane cloth added. (usually applied to roof ridges, walls etc.)
- Waterproofing with a fibre thread inside.
- Waterproofing with a silicon or rubber compound base.
- Cementous base waterproofing.
- Bitumen torch-on, with Aluminium over coat.

Surface preparation

- The surface that needs to be waterproofed, needs to be cleaned thoroughly from all damages on structure and old products, and dried completely deepening on products being used.
- Any loose particles need to be removed in order to guarantee proper adhesion.
- In certain circumstances, a type of acid wash is needed to ensure surface is clean.

Application

- If all is ready, and Plena Fide are positive that the surface is clean, the application can begin. Depending on the type of waterproofing, certain drying periods are required between applications.
- A 2-4-coat application is applied, with the necessary drying periods between each application.
- Because of the severity of a water leak, Plena founded found that this method is most effective, and therefore ensuring total customer satisfaction.
- Plena Fide waterproofing service can do waterproofing on the following roof tops: Tiled roofs, IBR and corrugated roofs or SLABS.
- Plena Fide waterproofing service can also do walls and Floors, cement and tiles floors.

Waterproofing Roofs

In South Africa zinc or galvanised IBR sheet is one of the most affordable roofing options and is installed on many homes in both rural and urban communities. Even upmarket housing and commercial developments use galvanised roofing on contemporary designs and, when properly maintained, this roofing option can last 20 years or more. One of the worst enemies of zinc or galvanised roofing is rust. Once rust gains a foothold it can quickly destroy a roof.

Steel Roof Repair and Painting Contractor

Plena fide repair rusted steel roofs, as much as possible. Rust must be removed then the surfaces need to be treated. Our skilled contractors are trained in the replacement and repair of all types of steel roofs. From IBR steel to corrugated iron, we do it all. Plena Fide offers the most cost effective and correct way to the rust solution. These are the steps we take to make that rusted roof look new.

Wood Maintenance

Wooden windows and doors require periodic care in order to ensure they maintain their good looks, durability and proper function. Naturally, timber windows are subject to a mixture of weather conditions and due to the various types of architectural and installation solutions, there is no hard and fast rule that stipulates just how often these wood maintenance activities should be done. With a passion for wood, Plena Fide realized the necessity for giving wood the precise and passionate treatment it deserves. Because wood stays a living organism, even after sculptured into whatever final product is required; a wooden window, a wooden door, wooden sliding door or even a lovely outside wooden carving, it cannot survive without the correct and continues treatment it needs. By means of trial and error, Plena Fide established the correct way of wood maintenance on windows, doors, garage doors, sliding and sliding folding doors.

Wood Maintenance Process:
The wood maintenance starts with, removing the old varnish or sealant application on the wood completely. This is done by physically sanding down or and paint stripping the entire window or wooden item. Now the sanding is only done on the outside, and the reason for this, is because the damage is only on the outside. In severe cases we even turn to some type of paint stripper, to ensure that the old product is removed completely. After this is done, we start with the healing proses. We apply 3 layers of a mix of various oils onto the raw wood, of which the final coat includes a wood stain (the customer’s choice).

Now this oil mix is compiled of specific types of oils, to ensure maximum penetration into the wood fibres. We found that, it is impossible to seal a wooden window or door 100%, that is why, we rather give the wood the correct nourishment, in order to withstand the severe climate changes of our lovely country. Once this labour-intensive treatment is finished, then it is merely a matter of annual wood maintenance. No more sanding, no more special oils. It merely needs a generous coat of one of our locally manufactured wood oils on the market. You will now start to enjoy the wood in your life, and not despise it.
